Door sensor option

Instead of motion detection, can a camera be synced to turn on when a door opens? Example: I'd like to install in backyard where fence door is located, but a range of things would set the camera off in motion detect mode alone (leaves, a squirrel, kids playing, etc... ) so, it would make sense if it could start recording only if the backyard door were to be opened. An old camera system I had was synced to a z-wave door sensor and it would start to record only when the sensor activated which was perfect. Arlo support, any ideas?

A serperate motion detection sensor for outdoors that does not need to be powerd, but could trigger a camera to start recording would be great! This way I could utilize my front yard camera (which cannot detect motion due to the window it looks through) to capture movement.
